Exodus: Movement of Jah Professors

Hany Farid.jpgThe word in Hanover is that a great many professors are shopping their resumes around academe — such is their despair with the Hanlon administration. The first to hit the road is Professor Hany Farid — the “father” of digital image forensics — who was the subject two years ago of one of this space’s Guide to the Stars. He’ll be decamping to Berkeley soon. Farid has made an international name for himself analyzing doctored photographs, and employing the internet to track down users of kiddie porn and purveyors of extremist ideologies.

Farid was part of a group of professors who went to see Phil Hanlon in 2016 to plead for more effective administration policies. Phil listened politely, promised to think seriously about the faculty members’ concerns, and then, of course, did nothing at all.

Addendum: As a matter of policy, the administration does not announce the departure of professors to other institutions. If you hear of other faculty members leaving for more salubrious climes, please let me know.

    How Regents Should Reign
